Server and Game Rules
We would like to create a safe, fun
environment for players to come to escape their everyday lives. In
creating this, all we ask is you follow a few guidelines in helping to
keep this environment for everyone.
Please Note: Server and Game Rules
& The #HarborHouse rules will be two totally different set of
rules. One is to follow while in the setting of the game, the other is
for the chat room and server. Regardless, it is asked that you follow
both, thank you.
OOC and IC:
First and foremost, we ask that you keep all out-of-character subjects
and channel discussions off the main channel. OOC can disrupt other
players' role-playing and there is little tolerance for this. Please
remember to keep all OOC in whisper. If you need to talk about
something OOC, take it to an OOC related room, or whisper. This way it
is respectful to the other players.
Conduct in the
While hidden innuendos, stolen kisses and innocent touches are
alright, acts such as groping, fondling, overly excessive kissing
and/or any conduct that is disruptive and in bad taste are not allowed
in the channel. The same goes for verbal harassment and violence, but
that is a subject best left to the Ops decision. Please be respectful
by keeping it clean.
other games in the room:
This is a Server Wide Rule. You cannot come into a room just to
advertise a completely different room and game. (How would you feel if
someone came into your room disrupting your RPG, and advertising
across the screen about a totally different game? None too pleased. So
please have respect for this rule, otherwise it will be an auto-kick
and possible ban by Ops.)
Ops can be on at any time during your stay at #HarborHouse. They are
there to keep the game fair and safe for all players. While you may
not like or agree with an Ops decision, please respect it and do not
disrupt the channel by creating an argument. Some Ops might see
something in a totally different light, and may react differently
depending on a situation. If you feel a case was wrongly handled, take
it up with the Ops and they will try to explain in an OOC channel.
Godmoding is a hard term to judge. It's when a player takes a
character, and gives them godlike abilities: Always the winner in
fights, never takes a scratch and can do it all, or simply doesn't
acknowledge their opponents actions. In Abyssia, we ask that you do
not become one of the few who bring down a game because they want the
do-it-all, know-it-all character. In some cases, extreme power gamers
and godmothers will not be tolerated by an Op or other player who
reports it to an Op, and will be asked to leave the channel.
Setting of the Game:
If you didn't know, Abyssia takes place somewhere in the early
renaissance, medieval period. Unlike actual history though, Abyssia is
a completely different planet, in a completely different era and
space. This allows for the multitude of characters, races, stories to
run, and gnomish gadgets/inventions. This also means we are *not* a
Sci-Fi RPG. We don't have machine guns or lightsabers... anything that
denotes a technically advanced world. Please remember this while
playing in channel, as any OOC is not permitted.
